A simple kitchen utility cart is not an expensive investment but it can be quite beneficial in a small kitchen where counter or workspace is lacking and where you could use the flexibility of a surface on wheels. Kitchen utility carts can be used for the sole purpose of storage or as a prep area. Their most beneficial characteristic is the ability to be easily moved from one area to another. You can even use your cart to serve prepared food at meals or gatherings. Such carts can be found in wood, metal or even plastic materials that are easy to keep clean but more utilitarian in appearance.
If you have a small kitchen but want the functionality of a kitchen island, do not despair: Just because you are working with a small space does not mean you are cut off from this convenient kitchen feature. Kitchen islands do tend to be popular in large kitchens, and they typically have expansive designs. But by getting creative, you can have a mini kitchen island in your small space.
There was a time when kitchens were treated just like every other room in the house, and no special attention was paid to lighting or decor. Many older kitchens just feature a single hanging light fixture, regardless of the size, shape or color of the room.
